Pride Alliance Center

Part of the mission of the Hawkeye Pride Alumni Network is to support current students. The Pride Alliance Center, known by many students as the “Pride House,” provides a supportive and inclusive environment. It also hosts programs that empower students, faculty, staff, and community members to excel in academic endeavors, experience diversity, engage in activism, make positive choices, and serve their community.
